Large Date, Clashed Obverse and Reverse, obverse pie shaped die cracks with heavily clashed obverse and reverse dies - Significant die clashing has taken place between Obverse 1 and Reverse A. Obverse die clash marks are clearly evident on and around Liberty's upper body. On the reverse, strong die clash marks are visible around DIM(E) and through the ribbon and stem ends. Reverse A will be used again with a Small Date obverse creating F-104.
Plate Coin; The plate coin shows a spectacular strike and example of the shattered and clashed 1837 Large Date obverse variety. A most difficult variety to locate in this state of preservation...probably the finest known based on review of past auction records.
